I was in Redwood Valley, at Barra Vineyards, a few weeks ago for a dinner event, so once again I bring you images outside of the scope of Willits Daily Photo for a change. Commercial vineyards haven't made their way to us up in Little Lake Valley, to the north, yet. That might change with the climate.
I don't know if the buds on the last picture above are unopened flowers, or if those are the beginnings of the grapes themselves, but I liked the glancing evening light upon them. The off and on late spring rains can make a huge impact on various fruit crops, which depend on well timed sunshine and unfettered bees. I hope all is well for the grapes.
